Welcome! We’re glad you’re here. The very first thing we’ll ask of you is simple: relax. You’re with friends. Even if you’ve never been in church before, you’ll have no worries about being flagged as a “newbie”, or finding yourself “volunteered” to make seven dozen cookies for the first grade class.
WHAT I’LL FIND WHEN I VISIT
When you come to visit for the first time, what you will find is this:
– an inviting atmosphere
– friendly people who’ll help you find your way around
– today’s music, powerful dramas , high-impact media presentations
– messages relevant and motivating to your daily life
– a caring environment for your children
Whether you’re single, married, single again, with or without children – no matter where you’ve been or what you’ve done – we invite you to experience the difference here.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT ON MY FIRST VISIT?
From the moment you pull into the parking lot, we hope you’ll feel at home. Our greeters will be poised and ready to give directions or answer any questions you may have. If you have children, you’ll want to take advantage of our safe and secure children’s services designed just for them.
As you enter the worship center, our ushers will welcome you, hand you our information-filled weekend worship guide and direct you to your seat. Then, sit back, relax, and enjoy the service!We’re more concerned with meeting your real life needs than with what you wear. So, all styles of dress are appropriate. Wear whatever is comfortable for you.
WHAT IS A WEEKEND SERVICE LIKE?
Whether it is your first time at Paradise First, or you’ve been attending for years, you never know what to expect during our service. From the moment you walk in the door, until the moment you leave, we are committed to a creative, compelling, challenging presentation of God’s truth.
Pastor Jack Wright communicates in a way that speaks to today’s culture. Pastor Jack focuses on how to apply Christ’s teachings to our lives, so we each can experience God’s incredible purpose each and every day. He is an anointed speaker who will powerfully affect adults and youth alike with challenging and life-changing messages. Few are gifted with the ability to possess humor, a prophetic edge, and have powerfully anointed altar services with each message.
WHERE DO I TAKE MY CHILDREN?
You’ll find first-class programs for your children. Our Nursery offers a warm, colorful, and caring environment for your precious ones, with rooms designed for each stage of development.
Your children, from kindergarten through 5th grade, will be at home in Kid’s Church, designed just for them. Your girls and boys will experience church like never before, with the latest games, music and video, created to present God’s truth in fun and innovative ways. They won’t want to miss a single service.
DO YOU HAVE SOMETHING FOR STUDENTS?
We sure do. If you’re a Jr. High or High School student, Encounter is the place to be!
The Jr. High and High School Ministry at Paradise First provides a special service just for our 6th-12th grade students. Each Wednesday evening in the Youth Center, your students will experience worship, games, and real and relevant messages that meet them where they are, in an environment where they can be themselves.
